Industry 4.0 is about the interconnectivity and digitalisation of industrial systems that need to be integrated in order to improve the efficiency of resources and, in turn, processes. Both research and commercial sectors are working towards addressing specific challenges, such as data modelling, collection and processing. A correct manipulation and interpretation of data is critical and, now, more difficult than ever due to the dramatic increment of the amount of data generated at different levels of enterprises. Ultimately, this research work presents a solution, integrated with an existing cloud-based platform, for collecting and processing real-time factory shop floor streams of data. Such solution is an IoT-based development, which consist on both IoT hub and gateway that permit the consumption and communication of device information. The required message exchange is done within state of the art technologies and protocols e.g., MQTT protocol and REST-based interface. The implementation of the solution is demonstrated through an industrial-based scenario.
